    Vijay Diwas (Victory Day) is celebrated in India on 16 December to mark the Indian victory in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971.

    Kargil Vijay Diwas, sometimes also called Vijay Diwas, is celebrated on July 26 in India in remembrance to the soldiers who died in the 1999 Kargil War between India And Pakistan.
